Buttered bread

Boil and strain the tomatoes, add the gelatine and seasonings. When cool, add pimientoes, nut meats, and celery. Spread when cold on buttered slices of bread, add a lettuce leaf dipped in mayonnaise dressing, and top with a slice of buttered bread. Cut into squares and serve on a sandwich tray.

LADY MARY SANDWICHES
Stoned and chopped dates
Chopped pecan nut meats
Honey
Lemon-juice
Lady-fingers

Mix equal quantities of dates and pecan nut meats, and moisten with honey and lemon-juice to taste. Spread between lady-fingers and serve tied in small bundles. These sandwiches are delicious with hot chocolate.
Another Method.—Spread apricot or strawberry jam between the lady-fingers. Decorate the tops with whipped and sweetened cream and candied rose leaves.

LEMON-BUTTER SANDWICHES
White cake
4 lemons
1 lb. (2 cups) sugar
1 oz. (2 tablespoonfuls) butter
3 eggs

Put the grated rind of one of the lemons, with the strained juice of the four lemons, sugar, and butter into a saucepan and stir and cook for five minutes. Take from the fire and add the eggs well beaten. Return to the fire and cook for three minutes longer, stirring all the time. Be careful the mixture does not burn. Cool and spread between dainty pieces of white cake.
Or spread slices of bread with the mixture, cover, cut into fingers or any other shape preferred, and arrange daintily on a silver plate with an ornamental paper.
